Great passover recipe! I used 1.75oz pecans, 1.75oz walnuts, 1/2 cup coconut and no raisins, and came up with 5WW points per 1/2cup serving (12 servings total). I like that it's not too sweet, and infact my nuts were salted so it is on the salty side, which I happen to love. tasted it warm from the oven, and I can't wait till tomorrow's breakfast to eat it cold with milk! Thanks Mirj!
